I got a goji berry plant as a gift, and the plant is doing marvelous, however I'm afraid my Connecticut climate will be too harsh on the plant on its first winter outside. Should I plant it outside this year or wait? Also, what do goji berries taste like?

Goji berry plant (Lycium Barbarum) is also called Chinese Wolfberry and is hardy to about zone 3 so it should overwinter in your garden. As far as I know the berries taste sweet but are followed by a bitter taste. If you dry the berries before consuming them, the bitterness seems to disappear. These plants can be invasive so be careful where you plant it!
